“Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:4 Therefore they that were dispersed went every where - These very words are reassumed, after as it were a long parenthesis, chap. xi, 19, #Ac 11:19 and the thread of the story continued|.
Ac 8:4 Went every where preaching the word. The rage of the persecutors only extended the reign of Christ. The scattered saints, long prepared at the feet of the apostles, went everywhere as preachers of Christ. The blood of Stephen was the seed of the church.
